Andies Prairie Climb

Connecting Elgin and Tollgate, this climb starts easy and ever-so-slightly increases gradient until a somewhat vicious climax at Andies Prairie SnoPark.

Big Mission Loop

A massive undertaking in one day, over two major climbs, the Big Mission Loop goes up to Tollgate and then on a long descent down to the Umatilla River, through the Native American town of Mission, and then up the old highway to Deadman Pass. There is a relatively short freeway ride between Spring Creek and La Grande, but otherwise the route is on sparsely traveled beautiful country roads.

Grande Ronde Time Trial

Very fast, very straight. This course is sure to accommodate a top speed performance. The timer starts on the west end of Market Lane and travels about 4 miles to a bend in the road that takes riders past the historic Lower Cove School location and then across a bridge over the Grande Ronde River. The turnaround is at caution signs that flank the road. The east/west nature of the road helps negate the effects of the notorious south and north winds of the Grande Ronde Valley.

Wallowa Mountains Road Bike Loop

This is the big massive, big scenic loop. While very popular for motorcycles, not many cyclists try it because of the brutal climbing and isolation on the backside of the Wallowas. The route shown here is counterclockwise starting in La Grande. It includes a secret cut-off through Keating (east of Baker City) on Miles Bridge Rd, Keating Cutoff Rd, and Banta Rd in that order. It will add a couple miles of nice gravel road but save you about 50 miles of riding on pavement out of the way to Baker City.

Warning: The Pine Creek Summit climb is mercilessly long and the Salt Creek Summit cl...
